A group of volunteers with Home-Start South Holland have marked reaching the end of their preparation course.

A total of 13 people undertook training, aimed at anyone who has proven parenting experience who wishes to support local families with both emotional and practical help.

Senior coordinator Mary Hutson said the ten-week course covered a range of topics in preparation for home visiting and added that recruitment is underway for the next course, beginning on Tuesday, February 26 at the Holbeach Children’s Centre (9.30am to 2.30pm).

Mary added: “The charity is also looking for members of the public with specific business skills to become trustees to support the organisation’s future plans for delivering this vital lifeline to families.”
